Plasma Is Still The Superior TV Display Technology

By David Richards | Thursday | 01/08/2013

If you ask most serious TV reviewers they will tell you that Plasma is still the best display technology in the world and that is why the Samsung PNF8500 and the Panasonic VT60 and ZT60 have recently been voted the best TV's in the world.

Consumers looking for serious top end quality are going with plasma as opposed to LED TV technology the primary reason
is that they are more interest in display performance than a thin bezel or sexy stand. New Quixel Research reveals that in the 60" and above Plasma TV segment sales increased nearly 70% in units from CY 2011 to 3012 this resulted in an increase of 53% in revenues. Earlier this year some mass retailers in Australia were selling a 60" plasma TV for sub $1,000. Research shows that 2 out of 5 of all the 40" and above HDTVs sold were Plasma TVs. The big problem for Plasma TV makers is that retail staff keep selling the overall look of a TV as opposed to the display quality and 8 times out of 10 the overall thin look of a TV wins out because it has "sex appeal" as opposed to sheer display quality. 

In New York recently a bunch of the most experience TV professionals sat down to choose the best TV in the world today, the winner was the Samsung PNF8500 which is featured on our cover.

This TV which we recently tested in Australia narrowly defeated the Panasonic VT60 and ZT60 series plasmas in the final voting. This is the ninth year that this team of professional sellers, installers and reviewers have chosen the best TV in the world. This time however they included the Sony's 4K/Ultra HD XBR-X900A TV,
this says a lot about the quality of plasma.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
